I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology in 2006 from the University of Rochester, in NY. I completed my Predoctoral Internship at Yale Medical School / Waterbury Campus with a focus on Neuropsychology and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. My first Postdoctoral training was at McLean Hospital/ Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts. I then completed my second Postdoctoral Fellowship at Two Brattle Center an Intensive Outpatient Psychiatric Center also located i Boston, Massachusetts. Also obtained my psychology license in the state of Massachusetts.
Please see Education above. From 2006 until 2010, I worked as a Group Co-Coordinator and as an Individual Therapist at the Brookline Community Mental Health Center in Brookline, Massachusetts.
I helped the clinic build up their DBT group psychotherapy program, and also worked with individual clients struggling with a variety of mental health concerns ranging from depression and anxiety to chronic PTSD.
In 2007 I started my Private Practice in Cambridge Massachusetts, and worked there until I moved to Germany in 2016. In my practice I also worked with clients presenting with a variety of clinical concerns, including- depression, anxiety, attachment related disorders, addiction, and chronic PTSD.
Since January 2017, I have had my Private Practice in Heidelberg, Germany with a similar clinical focus as described above.
My clinical approach is primarily integrative drawing on a variety of techniques including CBT, DBT, Mindfulness, and insight oriented approaches. In addition recently I have been learning more about IFS therapy, and Sensorimotor therapy approaches to work with clients who struggle with PTSD.
